One of my best and oldest friends, Ole, and his new lady-friend Jess spent a couple nights with us this week on their way from Boston, MA to Fairbanks, AK. I took a day off work so we could hang out and maybe get a little climbing in. Ole and Jess aren't avid climber, but have both been climbing before, so I figured a quick run up the Wiessner Wall would be a fun little outing. We headed up the grueling West Bluff Trail, and despite the humidity made it to the top of the Wiessner Wall.

After a little rest and a quick photo shoot, we headed down the access gully to the base, booted up and got right to it.

We did it in two pitches, first the Wiessner Chimney (5.4)
and then the Upper Wiessner Crack (5.2).
We had a blast!
|If that smile doesn't say "Rock climbing is fun!" I don't know what does.|

All-in-all it was a rad way to spend an afternoon with great friends, have fun on the rest of your adventure guys - miss y'all already.
